Amazon sent 2 Amazon Air cargo planes loaded with relief supplies donated by the company from the US and Germany to Istanbul over the weekend.

According to the statement made by Amazon, more than 45 tons of basic needs and shelter materials such as tents, sleeping bags, heaters, blankets, prepared and packaged by Amazon teams all over Europe and the USA continue to be delivered to those in need in the earthquake region through NGOs working in the field.

The aid delivered by Amazon Air cargo planes is a continuation of Amazon’s support for the region.

In the first days of the earthquake, the company sent tens of thousands of relief supplies to the affected areas, established a Disaster Relief Center near Istanbul within four days, and pledged a total of 600 thousand dollars in cash donations to non-governmental organizations working in the region. Amazon has also launched donation campaigns on local Amazon websites and mobile apps in 16 countries to make it easier for customers to donate to organizations working in the field.

AWS continues technical support for the earthquake zone

Amazon Web Services (AWS) provided cloud lending and technical support to local organizations supporting relief efforts following the devastating earthquake in Turkey. Technical experts implemented a mapping application powered by AWS called Afetharita.com. The app uses artificial intelligence to create a map showing requests for help sent through social media.

AWS also helped people in the region let their loved ones know they were safe by scaling AKUT Search and Rescue Association’s I’m Safe app a few days after the earthquake. The app has been downloaded more than 1 million times so far.

Technology firm Basarsoft also used cloud computing credits from AWS to create the Earthquake Relief Needs Mapping Portal. The portal uses location-based social media posts to help direct search efforts to critical areas such as collapsed buildings and debris. The app also makes it easier to locate people who need help and allows anyone to request assistance.
